Office 365 - change Outlook mailbox display name?

Hi all,

We are using Exchange Online and I have an issue which is not causing problems, but I know it will confuse less savy users.

Our emails are are orginally set up as: user.name@mydomain.ONMICROSOFT.COM. Obviously this can be changed in the user portal so user.name@mydomain.com.au is the result.

My problem/question is that when a user is setup in Outlook, their mailbox display name (not the display name, but the title of the top level of the mailbox in the tree) and calendar name is the original user.name@mydomain.ONMICROSOFT.COM. Any way to change this?

Many thanks,
